It would push me down slowly, but also I wouldn't be able to move or look anywhere without it rubberbanding back unlike in 1.12.2 where the player would still be able to move on the x and z planes, but would just be sinking down slowly.
I am really hoping that this is a bug or at least will be changed because this broke two of my builds, and I am sure that there are many more players' builds that have also been broken.
And any workaround for this will be very difficult, if not impossible.
